Celeriac facts:

Celeriac is a root vegetable that contains lots of yummy nutrition including, vitamin C, vitamin K, potassium and fibre!

With it being high in vitamin K and potassium it helps with our heart health and helps our bones become big and strong!

It is closely related to celery and parsnips which is why it has a nutty, celery-like flavour. When eaten raw it has a crunchy texture and when it is cooked it becomes slightly sweeter.

How to prepare celeriac:

There are many ways to prepare this vegetable but here is a simple recipe to help get you started:

  • First you need to either completely clean or peel your celeriac, whichever is easier for you.
  • Then using a big knife, chop up the celeriac in whatever way works best for you, could be big wedges (the bigger it is, the longer it will take to cook!)
  • Tumble in some olive oil and seasoning then roast at 180°C the celeriac is soft and golden (probably at least half an hour).

With this simple way of cooking it, you could just eat it roasted, or blend with some cream for a pasta sauce or soup.

There are loads of celeriac recipes out there, so once you have got your head round it, get exploring!
